Praise

“Fast-paced action, cool inventions and remarkable robots combine for an auspicious opener.” —Kirkus Reviews 

“Good fun in the tradition of M. T. Anderson’s Pals in Peril series.” —Booklist

“Zippy pace and original premise.” —School Library Journal

“Kids will especially enjoy George’s outlandish robotic and vehicular inventions . . . in this fun yet thought-provoking story.” —Publishers Weekly

“This is a delightful start to the adventures of the Lane family, with their flying tree and their mechanical bird tutor.  Evie and Rick and their brilliant if eccentric parents are wonderfully vivid, and the villains who try to impede them in their quest to save the Earth, equally memorable.  It’s all in the great tradition of adventure fiction for young readers, running back through Akiko and Freddy the Pig all the way to Tom Sawyer.” –Kim Stanley Robinson, author of Red Mars
